PAYING FOR COLLEGE

Fox Valley Technical College offers the most efficient and affordable option for higher education in the Fox Valley. 


Can financial aid be used for purchasing books?

No. Because of the timing to compute satisfactory academic progress, you’ll be responsible for purchasing your books. 

Will the credits be included with my Spring Term classes to determine financial aid credit load?

Yes. If you take 3 credits in the Winterim Term and 9 credits during the Spring Term, financial aid will calculate your aid based on 12 credits. 

Since the class start and end date is shortened, will all the course content be covered?

Yes. The class will be accelerated and will require more of your time outside of the classroom.
